BMW Is Tired Of Your Shit BMW Is Tired Of Your Shit

It’s often the case that BMW’s biggest competition is itself from a few years ago. “I miss the old BMW,” the enthusiasts declare, always referring to the same car from two generations back while deriding the new one as fat and wallowing and not as sporty as it should be. Around here we call it Bavarian Brainfart…

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 Hot Hatch Looks Both Silly and Serious and I Want to Drive One Badly The 2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 Hot Hatch Looks Both Silly and Serious and I Want to Drive One Badly

Mercedes physically revealed the Mercedes-AMG A35 yesterday in Paris after debuting it online a few weeks back. I had a chance to sit in the little hot hatch today, and now I deeply need to drive this little oddball of a car.

Check out this beautiful lineup of Porsche Speedsters at the Paris Motor Show. There’s the 356 Speedster up front, the new 911 Speedster concept (which Porsche announced will go into production) in the middle, and the 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Speedster 3.2 at the back. It’s an almost achingly gorgeous lineup of open…

Here's a Close Look At Some of the New 2019 BMW 3 Series' Mechanical Bits Here's a Close Look At Some of the New 2019 BMW 3 Series' Mechanical Bits

I’m here on the show floor at the Paris Motor Show sitting right next to the new 2019 BMW 3 Series. I’ve taken a bunch of pictures of some mechanical bits, of the interior, and of the sheetmetal. But if there’s something more you want to see, let me know. I’m willing to put my shutter button-pushing index finger to…

Renault's New Luxury Robo-Vehicle Concept Is Gorgeous Vaporware Renault's New Luxury Robo-Vehicle Concept Is Gorgeous Vaporware

Renault took the covers off of this extremely French concept car at the Paris Motor Show today, and it’s claiming the ideas behind this car will revolutionize ride sharing for upscale clients.

Porsche's Building a Gorgeous New 911 Speedster, But Only 1,948 of Them Porsche's Building a Gorgeous New 911 Speedster, But Only 1,948 of Them

At least you can count on Porsche to build the cool shit that it trots out (I can’t say that for certain other automakers). The German automaker has greenlit production for the awesome and retro 911 Speedster Concept that we saw back in June.

The New 2019 Audi R8 LMS GT3 Is Still Stupid Expensive, Still Looks Awesome The New 2019 Audi R8 LMS GT3 Is Still Stupid Expensive, Still Looks Awesome

Following the Audi R8 LMS GT3 in 2015 and the Audi R8 LMS GT4 in 2017, the new, 2019 Audi R8 LMS GT3 is the latest of the German automaker’s customer-friendly race cars. They’ve all looked awesome and this one is no different.

The U.S.-Spec 2019 BMW 3 Series Debuts Without a Manual Transmission The U.S.-Spec 2019 BMW 3 Series Debuts Without a Manual Transmission

The BMW 3 Series basically originated the idea of the modern sport sedan. That’s why it’s had three pedals since the beginning, even as the market for manual gearboxes has been on the decline. But today, the Bavarian automaker introduced the new seventh-generation 2019 3 Series with one glaring omission: a third pedal…

The Skoda Vision RS Concept Brings Hybrid Power to the Hot Hatch World The Skoda Vision RS Concept Brings Hybrid Power to the Hot Hatch World

Now I know that the largely American Jalopnik audience doesn’t care much about Skoda, Volkswagen’s bargain Czech subsidiary, beyond maybe a general sense of longing. But a Skoda concept is coming to the Paris Motor Show that’s actually pretty interesting, and hopefully a sign of good things to come.

2019 BMW 3 Series: This Is It Before You're Supposed To See It 2019 BMW 3 Series: This Is It Before You're Supposed To See It

We may be deep in the throes of the sedanocalypse, but make no mistake that the 3 Series is still vital to BMW and its bottom line. And even as it faces more and more competition each year, and as it’s gotten bigger and heavier over the years, it’s still probably the sport sedan benchmark. Here’s the new generation of…

Remember when retro was cool again with the 2005 Ford Mustang and every automaker lost their mind for awhile, and then eventually calmed down? Well retro is far from dead it seems as Peugeot has a concept coupe inspired by the Peugeot 504 coupe from the 1970s.

While the three-row capable 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE will make its official debut at the Paris show next month, the automaker has quietly released copious photographs and all of the information surrounding the SUV today. Not the most exciting-looking thing in the world, but it’ll sell like hotcakes.

Renault-Nissan CEO Claims Sports Cars Still Matter After Killing Sports Car Everyone Wanted Renault-Nissan CEO Claims Sports Cars Still Matter After Killing Sports Car Everyone Wanted

Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn, in response to a question from Roadshow, claimed that sports cars are still important despite sinking sales because “they are a testimony of technology and of the brand.” It’s a nice sentiment, but it rings hollow considering Nissan’s current lineup of outdated sports cars and…

We oohed and aahed ourselves stupid over the lovely Buick Avenir Concept in 2015. It was absolutely gorgeous and its proportions were effortlessly good. And now it’s coming to the market—sort of.

When Mercedes unveiled its new AMG Formula One hypercar project, they said it would have the drivetrain from its F1 car. We were skeptical, as that would just be absurd. But Mercedes says it’s being serious – it’ll have a 1.6-liter turbo V6 screaming to over 10,000 RPM in a street-legal car.
